This sounds like quite an interesting event. It's possible "never-heard-before master reels" is just publicity-speak that translates into "never released but on the Archive" - however, Eaton has unparalleled access to the Betty Board master reels, and may well pick a show or two that she taped that doesn't circulate. (While he doesn't have permission to "circulate" them, airing them at events like these is probably OK.)
Given Betty's presence, I assume it will be her recordings. (Hence, in the '72-80 period.)

Hmmm, I never actually recognized that Betty and I coincide almost precisely (her "time", 72-80; my "time", 74-82).

No wonder we are soul mates...just don't let Dan Healy know that I would be chatting up Betty like no body's biz if she ever happened to post hereabouts (speaking of which, I am surprised that no one ever picks Forum "handles" using names of famous band associates like Betty, ya know?).

I hope it won't seem sexist for an old man to say Betty was always considered just about everything you (me anyhoo) could want in a gal, other than the one I married...
